[audio]Court of Hidden Faces - Snow - Court of Hidden Faces
Court of Hidden Faces, who some of you may remember from the Nishi 100 compilation, returns with a delicate 4 track release. The only sound sources for these tracks were an electric guitar, crackle from the amp, and a recording of rain. Slow-paced and hypnotic.

A month in 36 minutes: one track for each day of July 2005. Blue T-Shirt cooks up a smorgasbord of electronic styles and moods. Track 5 has barely begun when it dissolves into swathes of reverb; track 12 could be the soundtrack to the world's shortest film; track 10 is a chaotic flurry of filthy drums and slurred synths; the final track is a sprawling slab of ambience weighing in at a lengthy 4:56...

Vancouver's Pino The Frog is practically one of the family. For his third Nishi release, he treats us to more of his unique brand of digital obfuscation. Melodies and rhythms shine almost imperceptibly through layers of arbitrary complexity. This may well be the last you hear from Pino The Frog, at least under that alias, so don't miss it.
